    I have been failing efforts to reboot. I learned I absolutely have to do no P, no M, and no O - hard mode.

    New goal, starting now NO PMO for at least three days. I CAN DO IT, AND MUST DO IT!
    After that, next goal will be NO PMO for four days

    I like this idea, but the problem with it is that sometimes it doesn’t work that quickly. I’d say every 3 days for a few cycles, then every 4 days for another few cycles, etc. I know I would break sometime, maybe you aren’t like me, but I’d say only up the difficulty when you’re completely sure you’re ready.

    Take courage in knowing that the first 7 days are the hardest. So you are actually just hanging out in the hard zone. Things get easier once you get through the first week. One day at a time. Keep fighting!

    Thanks for the encouragement and advice. I'm making it through day 2. I really hope this streak will be much longer than 3 days even though that it my absolute-must initial goal.

    This is exactly what I was thinking, get at least 3 days locked in, then at least 4 days, etc. But I really hope to go longer and will try.

    Yeah, just make sure to know your limits and only go up when you are comfortable.

    One day at a time buddy. You are absolutely capable of doing this.

    I'm making it fine through day 2! I have not peeked at anything stimulating at all.

    I have passed my initial goal of 3 days no PMO. I did not peek at any stimulating materials!

    Now will see how much further I can go. Ideally 90+ days, but I don't want to be unrealistic. If I get past 6 days now but have to restart, the next time I think I will set a goal for at least 4 days.

    I have made major progress!

    I made 7 days no PMO!! NO peeking at any stimulating images or videos at all! This is a big deal for me after many decades of PMO, daily for at least the last few years. In prior attempts I always ended up peeking or having sex, and I believe this ruined healing. This time feels a little different - I have less urge to PM. Sex may be hard to resist, but I think I must try to do a hard-mode reboot.

    I still have pelvic pain and believe I need to add daily stretching in addition to no PMO. But for now I am happy to have resisted PMO and #1 goal is to keep that up (no PM at the very least!).
